A man suffered serious injuries after police say he failed to stop at an intersection and crashed his bicycle, which was modified with a motor.

About 8 p.m. Thursday night, police say David F. Bunge, 25, of State College, was traveling on the modified bicycle on Old Boalsburg Pike toward Easterly Parkway when the bike collided with a vehicle heading eastbound on Easterly Parkway.

Police say Bunge failed to comply with a posted stop sign prior to the crash.

The driver of the second vehicle along with a witness stopped to assist Bunge who suffered suffered injuries to both legs, police say.

First responders transported Bunge to Altoona Regional Medical Center via helicopter.

State College police Lt. Keith Robb says the crash shows why it is critical for bicyclists to obey traffic laws.

"You have to follow the rules of the road or this is what happens," Robb says.
